Soya Noodle (Tau-Chiam)

Dried Soya Noodle......

Extracts of Article on Soya.....
"Soya is one of the oldest and most nutritious foods in the world.
Soya has many nutritional advantages as it contains protein, fibre and isoflavones which have positive effects on cholesterol, bone density, menstrual and menopausal symptoms as well as preventing certain cancers. It is thought to be a wonder food by the Chinese who believe it can cure kidney disease, water retention, common colds, anaemia and leg ulcers. "
